Abstract

One mile from the center of Ashland, New Hampshire lies a 414- acre parcel of land known as Whitten Woods. The land is conserved by Squam Lakes Association, Squam Lakes Conservation Society, and the New England Forestry Foundation. The vast hiking trails and scenic views of the Lakes Region and the Pemigewasset River Valley attract people to this site throughout the year. Preserving and protecting native species is a priority for conservationists of this land. Other primary issues include: maintaining high quality water for surrounding water bodies, enhancing its recreational use for the community, and sharing the rich history of Whitten Woods. We will be assessing current wildlife action plans, wood harvesting plans and other ecosystem services that it provides to make suggestions for the betterment of these woods.
